Too much emphasis is put on the perfect body by clothing-obsessed
society. Naturists know that almost no one has a perfect body, and
that beauty can be found in bodies of all shapes, sizes, colors, and
ages. Nudity is the means to the goal of body acceptance; when nude,
the full beauty of the human body is exposed, creating pride in what
you've got and reducing the desire for what you've not.
